Suchit Sahni

Artist Profile: Born in 1977, Suchit received diploma in Fine Arts from the Academy of Fine Arts, New Delhi. Suchit considers himself as a stealer of city images and for him, an artist keeps plundering the vast treasure troves of images both hidden and apparent in a city’s body. And also he believes that the artist behaves like a contemporary Robin Hood, who gives the rich images back to the society with a deserving dividend. True to his philosophy, Suchit moves around the city of Delhi (and also many other cities that according to him impart the ‘feel’ of an India in transition) and from his moving car, he captures images from those places which had made an impression on his mind during his growing up years. Registration, interpretation and chronicling are the modes in which Suchit Sahni interprets the city of Delhi as he understands it.
